18 Perfect Emma Stone Quotes To Remind You Not To Take Life Too Seriously

Emma Stone is a boss.  Whether she’s making fun of Hollywood’s insane beauty standards or discussing what’s most important in life, she’s consistently bringing more light and encouragement into the world. Here are 18 of her best quotes.

beautiful

1. 

“What sets you apart can sometimes feel like a burden and it’s not. And a lot of the time, it’s what makes you great.”

2.

“You won’t hear me saying I have no body issues because I wouldn’t be human if I didn’t.”

3.

“Comedy was my sport. It taught me how to roll with the punches. Failure is the exact same as success when it comes to comedy because it just keeps coming. It never stops.”

4. 

“I’m actively working hard on learning to appreciate yourself no matter what. If what someone else says can easily derail you, it means your sense of self isn’t that firmly established in the first place. It’s an inside job. You’re beautiful and worthy and totally unique. People insult each other based on their own insecurities — even though it may feel personal, it really never is.”

5.

On Dieting: “You’re a human being, you live once and life is wonderful, so eat the damn red velvet cupcake.”

6. 

“In real life, sometimes it’s uncomfortable for me not to go for the joke. I’ve been looking at that in myself lately. Often, joking for me is a way of diffusing the awkwardness of a situation, so it’s kind of exhilarating to be a part of projects where there’s nothing funny or lighthearted.”

7. 

“I won’t make a bucket list because I’m so afraid that I’ll die and then people will find my bucket list and be, like, “Oh, she didn’t get to do that.”

8.

“I just live my life how I live as a person. I certainly am not, like, a saint or an angel by any means. I’m not anything like that. But I live just how I live.”

9. 

On Gwen Stacy’s character from Spiderman: “The great thing about Gwen is that she fights for how she should be treated by Peter. As much as he loves her, they have rough patches where she doesn’t want to sit around and wait because of his lack of clarity. That’s true of everyone—you deserve to be with someone who knows they want to be with you and is able to be there for you and support you. You don’t need to be waiting for someone who is playing around or confused.”

10.

“I think that telling people how you really feel, being who you truly are, being safe and taking care of yourself is the most important thing.”

11.

“When I look back, I don’t have regrets. In the moment I am really, really hard on myself, I’m definitely my own worst critic and can be my own worst enemy, and I’m trying very hard not to be that.”

12.

“You know how sports teach kids teamwork, and how to be strong and brave and confident? Improv was my sport. I learned how to not waffle and how to hold a conversation, how to take risks and actually be excited to fail. It taught me so much, and helped me overcome so much. And I realized, okay, this is my job.”

13. 

This Gem: “I’m into grilled cheese. Grilled cheese makes me feel beautiful.”

14. 

“Confidence is the only key. I know a lot of people who aren’t traditionally ’beautiful’ – not symmetrical or perfect-bodied or perfect-skinned. But none of that matters because all that shines through is their confidence, humor and comfort with themselves. I can’t think of any better representation of beauty than someone who is unafraid to be herself.”

15.

“I think there are plenty of soulmates out there. That’s what I choose to believe.”

16.

“Yes, you should be healthy and take care of yourself, but growing up, I’ve seen people who have horrible issues with food. I like to look like a person. It drives me crazy when you see women in movies playing teachers, and they have biceps. It totally takes me out of the movie. I start thinking, Wow, that actress playing this part really looks great!”

17.

“Don’t be afraid, even though people might say what you’re doing isn’t cool or isn’t right. I promise you, you will not regret it, if you stay true to who you are and what you love to do.”

18.

“I always thought it’s way more important to be funny or to be honest than to look any certain way.”

Trace the scars life has left you. It will remind you that at one point, you fought for something. You believed.

“You are the only person who gets to decide if you are happy or not—do not put your happiness into the hands of other people. Do not make it contingent on their acceptance of you or their feelings for you. At the end of the day, it doesn’t matter if someone dislikes you or if someone doesn’t want to be with you. All that matters is that you are happy with the person you are becoming. All that matters is that you like yourself, that you are proud of what you are putting out into the world. You are in charge of your joy, of your worth. You get to be your own validation. Please don’t ever forget that.” — Bianca Sparacino
